    Default Wild Trombeta x Wild Cuipeua

    I have been watching this fish for a couple of months. It is a Cuipeua and at first I thought female. Over the last year it has gotten pretty big and pretty. It is very red and mostly striated. Due to it's size I was thinking maybe male instead. Over the last couple of days I have noticed this fish staring at wood and also noted it has been chasing the other fish from it's spot. I know I have one male in the Cuipeua group which shows no interest.



    So I added the Trombeta who is a male this afternoon.



    and we already have some shimmying with the Cuipeua.

    If the Cuipeua is female....she is ready to rock and roll. Now for the Trombeta to get in the act. He is in the lower left of the video.

    Thanks Bill, I am just happy the wilds seem to be breeding fairly consistently. The next couple of days should tell us if the male will commit. I suspect he will. He was doing a little chasing with the Cuipeua last night.

    Thanks Ryan, besides the halo the Cuipeua is redder and has a slight high finned look which tends to indicate female.

    Some other observations from last night while the Cuipeua was shimmying the other two females (one confirmed) were swarming above her like bees. It almost seemed like they were watching/interested.

    Also the one Cuipeua male who seems are uninterested in breeding was hanging around the Cuipeua with a darker then normal tail. I think a little competition in a group of wilds help to promote spawning behaviors.

    So it is the third day after adding the Trombeta to the 230 with the randy Cuipeua. The Cuipeua shimmys at the Trombeta when he swims by. I also see some of the other Cuipeua females bowing at him too. I have observed before that the Alenquer region males are slow to pickup their side of the breeding end but once committed they are solid.

    Definitely still in the maybe part of this but hopefully time will move this into the definite state...we shall see.

    Here is a little wild wooing. The male swims towards the camera in the beginning and faces the wood with his tail towards the camera. The female does all the work...

    Thanks Ryan, my guess is three days. They will get a nice cold WC in the morning. As you can see the female is more than ready. She is waiting for him to catch up. I will say this male is the same one who paired with with the other male earlier...http://forum.simplydiscus.com/showth...ds+knew+better But I am sure he is really for a change.
